Research Advisor, BSc of Physics

Research interests

His main research fields are optical and radar remote sensing and image processing. In particular he has performed research in radar interferometry, digital elevation production, land use and land cover classification, post-processing and fuzzy classification. The applications of remote sensing range from hazard monitoring change detection, archaeological site analysis to paleo-environment and paleo-relief modelling. He is active in the development of small satellites for Earth observation. He is the author of the first Slovenian remote sensing monograph and of a number of papers on remote sensing, geographical information systems and computer engineering. He regularly participates in scientific conferences and has as a research fellow visited Hasylab (DESY, Germany), Institute for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (Technical University of Vienna, Austria), Austrian Academy of Sciences (Austria), and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (France).

He is employed at the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering, University of Ljubljana, as a professor of several courses on remote sensing and satellite image processing.
